NFL Network vs. Time Warner Cable flap

Down here in Austin, this is a big deal.  There are radio ads and tv ads every day from both sides.  Politicians are even getting in on the fight.

I was wondering what my fellow BTBers felt about this whole sordid affair?

Time Warner says that NFL Network is demanding that they be included in the basic package and TW feels it is not right to charge all of its subscribers for a channel they might not want.

NFL Network says they only charge Time Warner .70 per subscriber and since 88% of the top rated shows in cable tv history are NFL games, the network should be on basic cable.

I don't care as I have DirecTV, but it is interesting to watch the spin doctoring going on.

What are yall's takes on this dealie?
